I have a 2000 YZF 600r. Someone told me that I can get a F4i type of digital speedometer with a clock and stuff for under $30 on ebay. i can't find it though. Does anyone know where in Chicago (or the net) I can find this??

Also, is this something I can install myself? Or will I need some help?

Thanks..

they are probably referring to the sigma bike speedometer. this would not replace your existing, it would supplement it and have the added bonus of being very accurate.

Yep for that price they are talking about a bicycle speedo. It does not replace your current speedo Like Vcook said. I have one on mine. Basically I wanted a clock. But I also got

1. Clock
2. Spoodometer
3. Odometer
4. Trip Meter
5. Highest Speed
6. Average Speed
7. Stop Watch

Not bad for $30 I would recommend a cordless version.

the sigma 8000 was the hot model about a year and a half ago. they are about 30 bucks, and are accurrate up to 170mph+ if i remember right. Do a search on the net for that model, lots places sell it.

I have a Sigma. No problems. Does not top off. I had the bike up to 152 on it at RA. I mounted mine to the top tripple clamp. Easy to install. I'll get a pic up for you tonight.

You could install the F4i gauges althoug not all the functions would work and your bike has ot use a electronic speed sensor not a cable. The F4 for example uses a electronic sensor so you can use F4i gauges.

In theory this should work, but... big but, the output signal from the sensors must be the same voltage and and /or frequency as the biek it came from.

FOr example, my ignition uses a 50 point ignition pulse generator meaning that it sends 50 pulses per revolution that is what the computer expects to see. The digital speedos are also calibrated for the stock bikes final drive ratio. You would also need a yellow box speedo rcalibrator to fix this.

Waht i'm sying is that you better be good wiht electrical systems and be prepared for a lot of work... but it might be work it. I love the gauges on the F4i and all the new Hondas.

Oh you'd also need to make a custom mouting braket. It sort of sounds like a fun project.

its the Sigma Sport. But its several years old. I would suggest going to a Bike shop and checking them out. I would like to have gotten a cordless one. The cord on this one is a bit short esp when the load on the front is removed, ala wheelie. Ok Jim my Garbage ones do relax the front a little.

so how does it work? what do you hook it up to? should i just go to a bike shop and read the directions? :D
Its pretty simple. First you measure the circumferance of your tire. Punch the data into the speedo. Bam your calibrated. Then you mount a small magnet onto the wheel. Then the pickup gets mounted to the fork. They are inline but not touching. I just used wire ties to hold them. Run the cord up the forks. Her is the tricky part with my unit. I made a cylinder and screwed it to my tripple clamp. Then used the supplied o-rings to mount the screen. Done. You could velcro the unit, or other means to mount it. Most units are detachable. If your comin to the picnic Sat, I'll show ya my setup.
